Three names who've allegedly auditioned:

(Now I know Matt Smith was young, but Kaluuya's ridiculously young.)
I'll accept Kaluuya as the Doctor as long as they do an episode where his incarnation of the Doctor meets Tony Hancock.

Yeah he's definitely got a "look" that could work for a 1000 year old alien. The eyes don't hurt either





And he's ginger!

Of the three, I've only seen the guy who's played Stark's dad in the Captain America movie. He wasn't particularly impressive.

Re: Predict who will be cast as the 12th Doctor

From what I've seen of Daniel Kaluuya's work (and it's not much) he seems to be at his best playing wisecracking everymen, albeit those with a slightly twist about them. If not the Doctor, he'd be a perfect companion, I think.

I understand Dominic Cooper (probably the most recognisable name of the three) has a lot of movie commitments at the moment, so he'll probably be balancing all of these around. I can't see him not appearing on the show in some capacity, though.

I've never seen Domhnall Gleeson's work, so he'll probably be the favourite to take the part. Besides, it's about time we had a ginger, Irish Doctor. But seriously, of the three he seems the most likely to get the part.



... Unless all three are red herrings or have supporting roles on the show to complement a female Doctor.

Re: Predict who will be cast as the 12th Doctor

On the official Twitter, "We can confirm there is no #DoctorWho announcement planned for today."

I'm not surprised by this. After some thought, it seemed to me last evening that the rumors and chatter could have been aimed at spooking the BBC into making a premature announcement. It's possible that the three names being thrown about yesterday were so far off that the BBC didn't feel the need to get in front of the chatter.

That ginger dude does look very fitting. Moffat could try a man of few words for a change, if he can .

Toby Jones was lame in that movie. Is he usually more like that or more like in Amy's Choice?

They've been beating the "ginger haired" thing in the ground (which is a continuity thing tied to a 7th Doctor story).
Explain?

I think it's very likely that Matt Smith made his decision a lot earlier than we were aware of. If that's the case then they have been casting since then, whenever that was.

Alex Kingston and Arthur Darvill have both now said that they've known Matt was leaving for awhile now, so that doesn't quite jive with what the production has said on the matter, but that shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone.

I've no doubt that Moffat wrote the anniversary script in full knowledge that it would be Matt Smith's penultimate Doctor Who story.

Re: Predict who will be cast as the 12th Doctor

No big surprise that this didn't turn out to be true, though as others have said I've no doubt that they're been looking far longer than they're pretending.

(Remember the person who revealed that there'd be twelve Police Boxes with Doctors inside going up in the Blackpool Illuminations?)

Re: Predict who will be cast as the 12th Doctor

If Moffat is thinking of making the next Doctor announcement at San Diego Comic-Con (which isn't out of the question -- it's six weeks away and people have said we'll find out "next month"), I hope his BBC higher-ups would smack him down.

It would be an announcement to the wrong market in the wrong venue to the wrong people. Doctor Who is a BBC program for the mainstream British audience; nerd culture Americans shouldn't be the first to get the news of the next Doctor because they are not the program's target audience. San Diego is not in Britain . And the crowd at San Diego is not the British press. Moffat and the program would be torn up alive in the British press if they made an announcement of that scale at SDCC. And British fandom would feel like they were being slighted, ignored, taken for granted; I've seen enough grinding and gnashing of teeth over the Doctor Who Revisited series on BBC America.

It would be a toxic situation. There are no benefits to Moffat from making an SDCC announcement.
